Am I able to work with the Web API solution if I don't know how to code?
Directly integrating our API gives you the most flexibility and access to our entire feature set. However, by choosing the direct API solution we recommend you have coding skills or a developer in your team.
In case you don’t have a developer or need assistance, you can just visit our Partner Program to find one who can help you with the integration.
How does a payment gateway work?
A payment gateway plays three major roles in online payment transactions:
- Authorise – It validates the customer’s payment (credit or debit card) information.
- Transfer – It transfers the validated information to the Internet Merchant Account for approval.
- Report – It records all the details of the transactions that took place.
It then reports back to the customer with the result of the assessment:
- Report – a receipt will be issued. You should check the confirmation email.
- Declined – Ithis may be due to insufficient funds. You should discuss this with your bank.
- Error – incorrect information. You will have to try again.
